Awning / Casement Windows

Awning

These systems use the same scissor stay hinges allowing the window to stay in the position that it is opened to. All systems use multipoint locking systems and have a lockable ventilation position.

The Casement can be made to open either inwards or outwards with left or right handed opening; it can accommodate up to 36mm glazing units and has double compression gaskets

The Awning opens outwards and also accepts the large 36mm glazing. It also has double compression gaskets.

New additions for these systems are the scissor action winder openers

Windows lose and gain heat by conduction, convection, radiation and air leakage. This heat transfer is expressed with U-values.

To help your selection process the Australian Window Association has developed the Window Energy Rating Scheme (WERS). WERS simplifies window comparison by rating windows using a star rating system, based on the window’s basic performance measures, U-value (Uw) and Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC). Windows receive a rating for both cooling and heating performance.

uPVC WERS Rating

0 Star Cooling

A high cooling rating implies the window reduces solar heat gain very substantially and may need no shading treatment.

0 Star Heating

Windows with at least four heating stars, on all sides of the house, will ensure that unwanted heat losses or gains are minimised.

0 U-value (Uw)

The lower the U-value, the greater a window's resistance to heat flow and the better its insulating value.

Timber WERS Rating

0 Star Cooling

A high cooling rating implies the window reduces solar heat gain very substantially and may need no shading treatment.

0 Star Heating

Windows with at least four heating stars, on all sides of the house, will ensure that unwanted heat losses or gains are minimised.

0 U-value (Uw)

The lower the U-value, the greater a window's resistance to heat flow and the better its insulating value.

Aluminium WERS Rating

0 Star Cooling

A high cooling rating implies the window reduces solar heat gain very substantially and may need no shading treatment.

0 Star Heating

Windows with at least four heating stars, on all sides of the house, will ensure that unwanted heat losses or gains are minimised.

0 U-value (Uw)

The lower the U-value, the greater a window's resistance to heat flow and the better its insulating value.
